This attractive three-storey property is one of several listed buildings on one of Tavistock’s oldest thoroughfares. It was refurbished in the late 1990s, as Brown’s Hotel. During the refurbishment a ‘holy well’ was uncovered which once provided fresh water for Tavistock Abbey. Brown’s Hotel was previously the long-standing Queen’s Head, an old coaching inn with ‘extensive stabling and yards’ at the rear. In the 18th century, the Queen’s Head was one of Tavistock’s many hostelries and, reputedly, on the site of an earlier inn.
